Error description

  • Using the following job stream definitions ...
    .
      SCHEDULE backup#pmr90403_d
      :
         backup#job1 AS pmr90403x01234567890
               PROMPT "Log event 203 message in events.log"
      END
    .
      SCHEDULE backup#pmr90403_c
      :
         backup#job1 AS pmr-90403
               PROMPT "Log event 203 message in events.log"
      END
    .
    And a BmEvents.conf file containing and EVENTS parameter
    including 203 and FILE configure to write to a file.  When job
    stream pmr90403_b is ready to launch the entry in the event log
    contains the job name "pmr90403x01234567890", e.g.:
    .
      203                                                       PMR9
      0403X01234567890           BACKUP 259 Log event 203 message in
       events.log       PMR90403_D 2012103016320000 v.4
    .
    However, when job stream pmr90403_c is ready to launch, the
    entry in the event log contains the job name "pmr", e.g.:
    .
      203
                   PMR           BACKUP 258 Log event 203 message in
       events.log       PMR90403_C 2012103015420000 v.4
    .
    In this case the job name is being truncated at the dash (-)
    character. I also see the job name truncated in a similar way
    when the job name contains an underscore (_) character.
    .
    Problem has also been reproduced on 8.4.0.06 and 8.6.0.01.
    

Local fix

  • Remove underscore (_) and dash/hyphen (-) characters from job
    names.
    

Problem summary

  •  see apar description
    

Problem conclusion

  • PROBLEM CONCLUSION: This apar will be fixed into 851 FP6
    and  8.6 FP3.
